At Muskingum, you have three options for obtaining books. Our local collection can be searched via the Muskingum catalog. Although most books are on the shelves, there are still some books marked 'temporarily unavailable' as we continue to process our move into the new library building.
You also have access to over 50 million items via OhioLINK. OhioLINK books arrive in 3-5 business days at no charge.
If all else fails, you can order books via interlibrary loan, which can take up to 2 weeks.
How do you find books on our shelves? Look for the location and the call number.
The location tells you where in the library the book is located. Some of the most common locations you'll see are:
Call numbers tell you where the book is located, as well as what it's about. The Muskingum University Library uses Library of Congress call numbers.
Be sure to look at the books shelved around the one you want. They're shelved by subject, so you may find a great book that way!
